NBA cautions comedian Lasisi Elenu over misrepresentation of lawyers

The Nigerian Bar Association has called on popular social media comedian, Lasisi Elenu to exercise caution in the way he represents the profession in his line of work.




The multi-talented comedian who depicts different characters in his skits recently added that of being a lawyer to his catalogue.

Lasisi adds humour to his imaginary court proceedings with high-sounding words while quoting non-existent parts of the constitution.

Reacting to his latest video, Habeeb Lawal, Assistant National Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association wrote “We beg to use you as a point of reference to all other comedians. Lawyers have awesome sense of humour, as such we enjoy your jokes & appreciate the creativity.



“However, if you must represent our profession in your works kindly ensure you properly adorn the wig, bip & gown.

“We acknowledge your right of expression, but NOTE that we also reserve the rights to take all necessary steps to guide against the ridicule of our noble profession and @NigBarAssoc shall not hesitate to exercise those rights.


“In the likely event that you need a guide on how to make a joke about lawyers without ridiculing our appearance, here is a good guide.”
